Couponing is work. It's a job that I can do (for the most part) in the comfort of my home while I am with my children. It is a reverse job, so to speak. I don't exactly get paid per hour, but I 'save' per hour. Everyone buys groceries. Everyone uses products in their homes for cleaning, toiletries, etc. We all try to save money wherever we can buy catching a sale, but many times we have to buy a product because we absolutely have to have it, regardless of the cost. Using the method of Coupon-Shopping, you can stock up on items at it's lowest price. When you combine with store promotions and/or competitor coupons, the deals can be enormous!
If I wasn't checking sales and combining with coupons, my total for all these items would have been $98.67. Instead I paid a whopping $15.30! All of these products came from Walgreens, Publix & Food Lion, all of which are less than a 6 mile radius of my home. A little planning and time at the store can go a long way. I am so thankful to those who have shown me this way of contributing to our family. I would love to share with you also!
